To help celebrate Easter, I had a fun afternoon tea party with my daughter. Who doesn’t love to get dressed up, get out the fancy tableware and sip on some fabulous Bigelow Tea?
As a busy mom I’m often pulled in a lot of different directions all at the same time. I want to make sure that I slow down to spend some real quality time with my kids. Having tea parties is a great way for me to put aside the chores and tasks of the day and spend time with my daughter.
The first step for our Easter Tea Party Activity was to buy some tea. It’s easy to find at Walmart and look at how many flavors you get to choose from!
I’ve loved Bigelow Tea ever since my college days. During one winter, I got hooked on the Perfectly Peach flavor as I tried to nurse a bad sore throat. Bigelow Tea is an American company and has been family owned for three generations. I love supporting American companies!
It’s Party Time!
We got the party started by choosing some fun Easter dresses to wear and brought out the fancy tableware.
Next I heated up a large amount of water in the microwave and then we sat down to drink our tea. We tried Cozy Chamomile, Orange Spice, Perfectly Peach, Vanilla Chai and Black Pomegranate.
As we sipped different tea flavors we started talking and making up silly stories. Having tea together creates a fun atmosphere to start sharing about life. I hope we can do this together as she grows older.
It wouldn’t be a party without some silly faces!
Then my daughter’s favorite companion, Lammie, decided to join us.
Of course Lammie had to try some tea as well!
We had fun sipping and trying all the different flavors. Each Bigelow tea bag is individually wrapped in a special foil bag that keeps it fresh. I think that’s why it tastes so wonderful.
We enjoyed spending time together talking, laughing, making silly faces and pretending Lammie was one of our party guests. But we had to make a decision:
Which flavor is our favorite?
- My favorite: Always was and still is Perfectly Peach. Orange Spice and Pomegranate both came in a close second.
- My daughter’s favorite: Everything except Orange Spice.
- Lammie’s favorite: Pomegranate Black Tea
The Easter Tea party was a big hit! My daughter loved getting some one-on-one time with Mommy and we both had a great time.
When we were all done, my daughter said:
“This is a special treat. I love this! Can we do it again tomorrow?”
My heart melted. I’m so glad she had as much fun as I did!
Thank you #AmericasTea and #CollectiveBias for helping to create a great afternoon with my daughter!
